His latest book is a must read for those who have been in the business for years and for those who are considering the improvement journey.

It's very well-written, easy to read, and uses a down to earth style with a dollop of humor sprinkled in.

More so as a sales pitch for QI macros and brief outlook of lean six sigma. will recommend to managers with no prior experience with lean six sigma for a narrative overview

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in applying lean six sigma to a healthcare environment. Jay focuses on tools that are fast to learn and immediately applied. Supported by case studies along with a number of interesting industry statistics.

This book is reasonable and a quick overview, but my no means an extensive or indepth analysis of the process or how to execute Lean Six Sigma. Ok for beginners, but you will need another book for a more details and to walk you through the process.

Some good info -- if you're the CEO and can actually change things in the hospital --interspersed with way too many f plugs for SaaS solution by the book's author. A lot of the material could have been explained without trying to force you to lease it.

This is a good choice for the new and the advanced reader.
New readers of Six Sigma literature can gain a broad perspective of the field.
The advanced Six Sigma student will find a refreshing set of examples and approach.
A very good book.

It was not what I was looking for. I needed something more solid in its theories and this is more like a how to step by step. And if you know six sigma at all, you know that you need more than that for the board to buy it. In any case there are far better books o better yet invest in the yellow belt like I did. It is wort the money.
